The Liberty Web introduced the past life of U.S. President Donald Trump in November of 2016. In this article we present the sequel to the “past life story” of President Trump.
Ryuho Okawa, Founder and CEO of Happy Science, conducted a spiritual interview with the Guardian Spirit of Trump, revealing that in his past life he was George Washington, the first U.S. President.
George Washington played a big part in guiding America, which was a British settlement at that time, into independence. People in America still revere him as a Founding Father.
Many of you may be surprised to learn that the Continental Army had three victories and six defeats. Nevertheless, they won independence from Britain in a miraculous victory.
The Continental Army lost in tactics but won in strategies, which has parallels to the result of the U.S. presidential election in which Trump lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton, but won the election.
Trump and Washington Are Both Good Judges Of People
It is often said that Washington was an honest person. The Liberty Web described Washington by citing this famous anecdote:
When he was still young, Washington admitted cutting down his father’s beloved cherry tree and received praise for his honesty. We now know that this never happened, but it does illustrate how much ‘honesty’ became a key quality that Washington was known for…. In strategy meetings, he incorporated the opinions of his generals as much as possible, became a father figure to young officers and was impartial when giving rewards and punishments. He wrote detailed war reports to the Continental Congress and earned the trust of its members.
President Trump also puts a high value on honesty in his assessments of people. His emphasis on honesty is reflected in the way he hires people. Trump places little value on how someone looks on paper and instead relies on his own intuition about the person. He judges a candidate based on his impression of whether he or she is honest. When choosing his cabinet members, Trump interviewed candidates at his own home. Trump gave considerable weight to the opinions of those he trusted. Washington did likewise and gave equal consideration to the opinions of those around him. The two men’s attitude is based on their trust of other people.
Disagreement Often Occurred among Cabinet Members of the Washington Administration
|Vice President||John Adams|
|Secretary of State||Thomas Jefferson|
|Secretary of Treasury||Alexander Hamilton|
|Army Secretary||Henry Knox|
|Post Master General||Samuel Osgood|
(CAP) Washington’s Cabinet Line-up
The U.S. media often criticizes President Trump for the differences of opinions among his cabinet members. However, considering that Trump is the reincarnation of George Washington, these conflicts are not surprising.
Thomas Jefferson, who served as Secretary of State under the Washington administration, opposed many of Washington’s policies and did not get along with the Secretary of Treasury, Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton was also on bad terms with Vice President John Adams and often clashed with him. Differences of opinion among cabinet members was very common in the Washington administration.
With his cabinet members in conflict with each other and acting as political foes, Washington was still able to organize= his people and put various policies in place to do this. He exercised such strong leadership that people eagerly wanted him to run for a third term in office.
Washington’s Farewell to His Officers
(cap) “Washington’s Farewell to His Officers” from a painting by Alonzo Chappel
How well, then, did Washington win the hearts and minds of the people?
The answer to this question is illustrated perfectly in the manuscript of Colonel Benjamin Tallmadge, who was present when Washington demobilized the Continental Army after its victory in the American Revolutionary War. The Colonel described the scene this way:
At 12 o’clock the officers repaired to Fraunces Tavern in Pearl Street where General Washington had appointed to meet them and to take his final leave of them. We had been assembled but a few moments when his Excellency entered the room. His emotions were too strong to be concealed which seemed to be reciprocated by every officer present.
After partaking of a slight refreshment in almost breathless silence the General filled his glass with wine and turning to the officers said, “With a heart full of love and gratitude I now take leave of you. I most devoutly wish that your latter days may be as prosperous and happy as your former ones have been glorious and honorable.”
After the officers had taken a glass of wine General Washington said, ‘I cannot come to each of you but shall feel obliged if each of you will come and take me by the hand.”
General Knox being nearest to him turned to the Commander-in-chief who, suffused in tears, was incapable of utterance but grasped his hand when they embraced each other in silence. In the same affectionate manner every officer in the room marched up and parted with his general in chief. Such a scene of sorrow and weeping I had never before witnessed and fondly hope I may never be called to witness again.
(The manuscript of Colonel Benjamin Tallmadge’s account is maintained by the Fraunces Tavern Museum.)
Washington was beloved by many officers in the Continental Army. In the first U.S. presidential election, Washington was voted into office unanimously.
Trump’s repeated use of the patriotic slogan, “Make America Great Again” may come from the values he upheld in his past life as George Washington. Trump encourages American people to once again embrace the founding spirit of the nation.
We would like to focus on whether President Trump will be able to lay the foundations necessary to bring prosperity to America like Washington did.
